Tara Reid and Ian Ziering will once again take on those pesky sharks when Sharknado 3 hits the small screen in July.

Reid, 39, and Ziering, 50, will reprise their roles for the Syfy film as April Wexler and Fin Shepard, the on-again-off-again married couple who somehow manage to save the world from sharks that get caught up in crazy weather and wreck havoc on humanity.

Syfy confimed the sequel at the 2015 Television Critics Association winter press tour Thursday and said the third installment will begin in Washington, D.C., and “will cause mass destruction in the nation’s capital then roar down the Eastern Seaboard.”

The first Sharknado film, set in Los Angeles, became an Internet sensation in July 2013. Sharknado 2: The Second One followed in July 2014 and was set in New York.

According to Syfy, the sequel became the most watched original movie the network had ever aired, bringing in 3.9 million viewers in a single sitting. Needless to say, the third film installment was ordered even before the second premiered.

Reid took to Twitter Thursday afternoon to announce the film and share her excitement.

Thunder Levin, the genius behind Sharknado, also tweeted about the announcement.

Reid said last year in an interview for GQ that a Sharknado could legitimately happen in real life.

“You know, it actually can happen," she told the magazine in July. "I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually. Which is crazy. Not that it—the chances of it are, like, you know, it's like probably 'pigs could fly.' Like, I don't think pigs could fly, but actually sharks could be stuck in tornados. There could be a sharknado.”
